Winners of the NFB Awards 2019 announced at ceremony in Birmingham
April 5, 2019
Construction companies and industry figures from across England and Wales gathered in the Midlands to celebrate outstanding contributions made to the built environment, and the high quality work and commitment delivered by both NFB members and non-members across the regions.
Hosted by ITN’s broadcaster and journalist, Nina Hossein, alongside actor, comedian and writer, Robert Llewellyn, the seventh annual awards ceremony took place at the prestigious and award winning Belfry Hotel and Resort, which has become synonymous with golf and fantastic achievement. The awards followed an NFB golf tournament which took place earlier in the day.
The NFB awards celebrated some of the best talent offered in construction and provided a unique opportunity for both NFB members and non-members to showcase and be recognised for their hard work. The NFB Awards provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate achievements as well as progression of the industry.
Awards were presented across 13 categories including Apprentice of the Year, Construction Employer of the Year and House Builder of the Year.
Richard Beresford, chief executive of the NFB, said: “The NFB Awards showcase all that is special about our industry. Each project has a real story and vision behind it. During these uncertain times, we were pleasantly surprised to have received a record amount of entries and the process of selecting the winners has been tough and involved much deliberation. The entries we received this year demonstrate the breadth of skills and talent that our industry has. Congratulations to all of the winners on the night!”
